ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Q Station PR) – Q Station, a collaborative workspace supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory and U.S. Space Force has chosen six companies for its inaugural Soft Landing Space Tech Cohort. The year-long program will give companies an opportunity to work in the growing New Mexico space ecosystem and to learn more about the U.S.’ space technology needs and how they may be able to work with the federal government to meet those needs.
The inaugural Soft Landing Space Tech Cohort companies and their headquarters are:
- Blue Eye Soft – South Carolina — creates AI models that predict satellite anomalies due to space weather events.
- Equatorial Space Systems – Singapore — developing proprietary hybrid propulsion technology.
